I suspect by the time a fully working multiarch is done, x86 won't need
it anymore because everything will be fully 64bit. :)

Now I suppose sparc and others might still like it if they have
performance advantages of 32bit code over 64bit code, in which case
keeping 64bit for only those programs where the extra address space is
worth it would be great.
